3G Users in Pakistan Reach 10.3 Million

3G users in Pakistan reached 10.34 million at the end of February, said Pakistan Telecommunication Authority.

Four 3G operators added 1.31 million 3G users on the networks during February with Mobilink topping the charts for converting most customers from 2G to 3G during the said month.

Mobilink added 423,371 users on its 3G network during the month while Telenor added some 405,883 users to 3G.

Zong translated 266,307 customers to 3G while Ufone managed to grab 216,137 users for its 3G services.

At the end of March, Telenor lead the 3G market with 3.1 million subscribers while Mobilink stood second with its 2.6 million 3G users. Ufone had 2.47 million 3G users while Zong contented with 2.11 million 3G users at the end of February 2015.

  • Warid may have more 4G Lte users but speed of Zong 4G Lte is simply Unmatchable. (Tested at Chen One Road Faisalabad and speed always remains constant)

      • are you mad? you are saying 3479.4 kbps (around 26 Mbps) less than 3G?? think again dude

          • but if you know little bit about Speedtest app it measures 1MB speed as approximately 124 kB/s, so here in my screenshot 3479 kB/s means 28 MB, and you are calling it 4 MB

          • Ok Guys I am here to solve your confusion ;)

            1 Byte = 8 bits ( 1B = 8b ) note that capital B is for Byte and small b is for bit

            Capital K = 1024

            Small k = 1000

            Network speed is mention in bits per seconds ( b/s )

            File transfer Rate is mention in Bytes per seconds (B/s)

            Now take example of PTCL 1Mb connection ( 1 Mega bits per 1Mb/s )

            Network speed: 1Mb/s = 1024 Kb/s (as 1M = 1024K)

            File transfer speed mention in browser is in Kilo Bytes per second (KB/s) = 1024 Kb/s divided by eight = 128 KB/s

            That is why 1Mb/s internet can give maximum 128 KB/s download speed

            Now come to that 1st screen shot of speed test shared by Zafar.

            Download speed: 3479 kB/s = 3479 / 1000 MB/s = 3.479 MB/s * 8 = 27.832 Mb/s (Typical unit in which ISP advertise there speed )

            Upload speed: 799 kB/s = 799 / 1000 MB/s = 0.799 MB/s * 8 = 6.392 Mb/s

            So in typical case speed is 27.8 Mb/s download and 6.4 Mb/s upload.

            • You can suggest then to visit google for Mb to MB conversion.
              I am getting 33mbps on Zong super 3G and in real i am getting 3.2MBps while downloading movie. you can check my screenshot posted as guest Usman

    • Bullshit 4G speed it is equal to 3.4 MBps download and 0.79 MBps upload.
      I got 5 – 12 MBps download speed on Zong 3G and
      12 – 36 MBps download speed on Zong 4G

  • If only the batteries didn’t burn too quickly – the number of 3G/LTE users would really explode.

  • Excellent start of 3G/4G.Results are beyond expectations.Main reason is that 3G/4G users in Pakistan are well aware about benefits of using latest data access technologies.As the rising curve of 3G/4G users has become exponential now, it seems figure will cross 20 million in just six months more.Well done 3G/4G cellular operators.
